Okay so my brother taught me about strategic movesets and i think I've got a team! See if you like...

Linoone (M) @Choice Scarf
Impish Nature
Trait: Gluttony
Ev's, Speed 252, Attack 252, HP 6
Attacks:
- Switcheroo
- Belly Drum
- Seed Bomb
- ExtremeSpeed

First of all i just wanted to prove to my brother (Linoone Tate) that Linoone Could be used Competitivly xD. Most people dont see Linoone as a stealth rock threat so they go a head and put up there rocks. I use switcheroo causing them to switch! Then their switching turn i use belly drum, and then i KO them with either seed bomb or extremespeed. (If im lucky during the switch i get leftovers)

Next up. the wall

Audino (M) @Leftovers
Bold Nature
Trait: Regenerator
Ev's - 252 Def. 252 Sp. Def

Next Up Physical Sweeper

Choice Scarf plus Belly Drum? Fail. Put Sitrus Berry. I'll try to answer this but i see obvious mistakes.
Also, your Audino is devastated by Taunt.
She's got switcheroo, so actually the fail is on you.
Flareon wants Max SDef & Max HP, not Max At & Max SAtk
Scarf ESpeed is so bad though, didn't I say Choice Band is better?
She won't listen, bro U.U
Oh, and Swag, i didn't see Switcheroo until then xD
I didnt either TBH

hey skarm. I'll be answering your RMT. This looks like a pretty good team, the movesets are great and I see what you're trying to do with each team member, but the EV spreads and natures are a little weird, so we'll be fixing those up. I also have a few improvements to make for the team's structure. Anyway, let's go :]



Linoone
I like this idea, it's pretty original, but the flaw is that most people know about the Belly Drum set so they'll usually straight up attack you, usually knocking you out. I'd just give it a Sitrus Berry, Gluttony, and Shadow Claw over Switcheroo. If you do feel it works, though, then Choice Band is definitely the better option, as it lets you revenge kill in case you haven't dumped your item. Also, Jolly nature is much better than Impish.



Audino
Not bad, not bad... although change the EVs to 252 HP / 252 SDef / 4 Def or 252 HP / 128 Def / 128 SDef for more overall bulk. Surprisingly you got the nature right on this one ;]



Sawk
Yep, pretty good. However, I highly suggest switching him to a Choice Scarf. You'll see why later. Also, make him Jolly.



Uh, great... I guess? Not a huge fan of Relicanth. If you want a Water type that can set up hazards, then Carracosta and Eviolite Omanyte are probably better. However, if you keep him, I'd give him 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SDef. Also, the moveset's weird. Stealth Rock, Head Smash, Waterfall and Toxic are the way to go.



Eelektross
Sorry, but Scarf Eelektross sucks. It has to give up its great coverage, and also barely outspeeds anything unboosted, let alone stuff at +1. And what's with all attack EVs on a mostly special moveset? And Impish? Why?! xD Okay, complete redo. Leftovers, 252 SAtk / 252 HP / 4 Def, Acid Spray, Thunderbolt, Giga Drain, Flamethrower. That should work a lot better.



Flareon
Flareon is a good pokemon, and it's cool that you're using it, but it doesn't really have a place on your team. Audino can already pass some nice big Wishes, and Emboar outclasses Flareon in an offensive role, so he's a good replacement.

Emboar (M) @ Choice Band
Trait: Reckless
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd / 4 SDef
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Flare Blitz
- Head Smash
- Wild Charge
- Superpower

Hits really hard, while going down in the process. Can be sure to tear huge holes in the opposing team for stuff like Sawk and Linoone to clean up.


Well that's me done, I hope I helped :]
